A view of the facade to the Guildhall in London, from King Street. The Guildhall was built on a twelfth century site in 1411, as a place where the merchant class held court, conducted trails, and fine tuned laws and regulations considering trade. The fifteenth century building survived the great fire of 1666 as well as the air raids during the Second World War, with only damages to the roof and is now used for events, as a public library and as an office for the City of London Corporation. Printed for the Gentleman's Magazine, 1751.
Condition: Two vertical folds as issued. Trimmed close to plate mark. Overall time toning.
